The BKc, Mos Def + Antenna Mag: Mos Def seen here wearing The Bkc “Japanese brushed cotton” trousers on the cover of Antenna magazine this month. The trousers have become a staple of the BKc offering and have also become a staple of Mos’ wardrobe, since he now owns all three colors. The first two he personally picked up at The Brooklyn Circus NYc and the final piece (army green) was personally delivered to him by The Bearded Man. A few weeks ago Mos called The Bearded Man last minute to confirm that his tickets were at the box office for the Premiere of his play “Free Men of Color” and requested the only pair he did not own in the Japanese brushed cotton” trio- The Green monster. After an amazing show, we slipped backstage to congratulate him on the show and deliver the final piece of his BKc trouser fascination. We kicked it backstage while John Midgley a big Mos fan held his camera tightly as we talked about the show, life, style and all things creative. Stay for more on this “Trio” of course the pants but the “Trio” of Mos, BKc and John Midgley. The BKc Style + Character & the 100 Year Plan . . .
The BKc, Round Table 2: Designed as a meeting of the minds, the event has become an important part of our goal to create more community with like minded talent. Roughly about a month ago at a private location in Brooklyn 40+ BKc approved individuals met to discuss “The 100 Year Plan” and what it means to them. The room was filled with influential bloggers, designers, marketers, musicians, label owners, graphic designers, trade show planners who have somehow contributed or been inspired by The Brooklyn Circus. A beautiful loft in Brooklyn served as the background of this historic moment of shared notes and ideas on the future and power of “ONE”. The theme of the night was “United we bargain, Divided we Beg” a quote that needed little explanation. Stay Tuned for a complete report (video, audio, B-roll and portrait project) on The BKc Round Table. The BKc Style + Character & the 100 Year Plan . . .
